    Well, I felt at home in the YMCA men's locker room at age 13, but came out at 19. I am now 22, but am past my flamboyant stage. I have a straight acting partner whom I plan to build a life with when I finish school :)

    Which next state to legalize the gay marriage?

    VA is wicked conservative.. I hate it. I have only been with my partner for 6 months but I want the option to get married in my home state when that time comes... ugh frustrating. The polls support same sex marriage so why not just legalize it already...

    Simple, define fluency...

    What does it mean to you? Skill-wise in ASL. Is it someone that can sign, can sign well, someone that is proficient? etc. Someone that knows the culture as well as the language? Someone that can converse comfortably in either ASL or English or whatever? Explain.

    What Ticks You Off (Most) About Hearies?

    Ignorance... I am hearing myself, but I am speaking about others. They act like people that are Deaf/HOH are from Mars. I look at them, and I think to myself... did you seriously just do/say that? Where are your social skills? I don't know. Some people just make all us hearing people look...

    Deaf Wanna-Be's

    Reading this, deaf wanna-be sounds like a form of Munchhausen (munch-how-sen) Biproxy... which actually is a documented illness.

    I don't have an accent... GRR

    It doesn't, believe me. Anyone that says that does not know what an Irish accent sounds like. Very different. Not sure how to describe the sound to you though, but they do not sound alike at all.
